University of North Carolina provost Dana Dunn stopped by the Education Dive office last week and spoke about her experience getting involved in higher education administration, as well as how she uses her position as an executive to support different initiatives on campus. Dunn said it’s important for leaders to be role models and encourage talented faculty members to consider taking on administrative roles — as these types of experiences can “whet the appetite” and inspire movement toward executive positions.  Dunn also spoke about the importance of administrators developing a broad array of support systems, such as financial planning or academic counseling. But truly, serving as students, she says, has to be a “part of the culture” or the “DNA” of the university to be successful.
